A Simple, Efficient and Versitile Balance Testing and Training Tool Featuring both Static and Dynamic Capabilities.
NEW FEATURES INCLUDE:
NEW Larger Display
The new display is 12.1" and is approximately 50% larger than the previous display. It runs on a Windows CE operating system. Windows CE offers many more capabilities including enhanced software, graphic, audio, and internet capabilities.
NEW Expanded Connectivity
The new display provides the ability to connect to an external computer monitor including LCD projectors and larger monitors. This enables visually impaired patients to better interact with the visual biofeedback. The display also accommodates USB keyboards, mouse and pointing devices for remote operation.
NEW Optional Audio Tone (audio biofeedback) for queuing successful target hits.
NEW USB Capability allows for data transfer and software upgrades via thumb drive.
NEW,/b> USB Compatible for wireless devices including printers.
NEW Ethernet Capability
NEW Video and Audio out to connect to other devices.
NEW Upgraded Software
The software has a new look and feel. In addition, it now includes Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance, updated Fall Screening Protocol and normative data.
NEW Interactive Catch Game for Balance Training
CATCH offers various progressive skill levels to increase patient interaction and keep them engaged. A custom protocol can be created with specific training activity in mind.
Visual Biofeedback - real-time biofeedback prompts patients into proper postural and balance control
Six Training Modes and Five Testing Protocols – for extreme versatility and standardized testing
Standardized Fall Screening and Athlete Knee Injury Screening Tests – simple, quick and accurate. Test results are compared to age-dependent normative data to help identify fall candidates and athletes predisposed to knee injury.
Twelve Levels of Platform Control as well as Static Force settings - allows testing, training and rehabilitation programs for diverse populations
Balance Training – includes proprioception and stabilization exercise, range of motion and weight shift exercises
Objective Documentation – printed color reports track progress and document outcomes – ideal for insurance reimbursement
Unlimited Patient Data Storage – using convenient USB thumb drive
Locking Surface – ensures safe "on and off" patient movement
Adjustable Support Handle – locks in place for safety or swings away for an unobstructed open environment allowing a variety of training activities
Mobility – transport wheels allow easy relocation between the clinic and community-based fall screening programs and health fairs
The most popular Balance System ...now even better
The Biodex Balance System SD has been designed to meet the needs of everyone looking to improve balance, increase agility, develop muscle tone and treat a wide variety of pathologies. It is also an excellent tool in the growing field of Fall Prevention. Each Biodex Balance System is shipped with a comprehensive Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning Program to help the clinician begin a Fall Prevention Program.
Featuring five test protocols, six training modes and intuitive "touch-screen" operation, the Balance System SD allows testing and training in both static and dynamic formats. Extremely versatile, it is the only system that provides fast, accurate Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning for older adults plus closed-chain, weight-bearing assessment and training for lower extremity patients.
Using this unique device, clinicians can assess neuromuscular control by quantifying the ability to maintain dynamic bilateral and unilateral postural stability on a static or unstable surface.
Use any of five test protocols including Fall Risk Screening, Athletic Single-Leg Injury Screening, Dynamic or Static Limits of Stability, Postural Stability and Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance. The Balance System SD also serves as a valuable training device to enhance kinesthetic abilities that may provide some degree of compensation for impaired proprioceptive reflex mechanisms following injury.
An easy-to-follow touch-screen format makes the system simple to learn and operate, leading the user step-by-step through testing protocols and training modes.
